FlavourArt Butterscotch

Butterscotch flavours for diy

This is a fairly light butterscotch, yet It’s more potent and sweeter than their caramel offering, and makes for a great blender, additive, or base to build on. I would consider this along with a few others to be essential inventory for butterscotch lovers.

FA Butterscotch Testing

  • Steeped for 2 weeks – Can be shake and vape
  • Mixed at 1 & 2%
  • Recommended percentages-
  • Solo Vape: 1 – 2.5%

Safety Data Sheets – SDS MSDS

Often links go away after time, so here are some points regarding ingredients – FA Butterscotch is certified free of added DIACETYL, ACETYLPROPIONYL and ACETOINE. No traces were found in testing.


A softer butterscotch than most although quite versatile, especially if wanting a light butterscotch note, or to use as an additive, subtle layer or blender. Not a great solo flavour. For a richer more buttery and creamier butterscotch, you may wish to look at FW Butterscotch Ripple.

Flavour Notes - Description

Due to the lack of diketones, this butterscotch is lighter than most, particularly in the areas of cream and butter (you’re invited to add more). There’s certainly some brown sugar notes though, and overall it reminds me of a cross between a syrup and a hard cracked candy or lolly. 

I also pick up a slight vanilla note with a sugary, slightly malty compound which is likely maltol.  There’s a nice balance of ingredients with this flavour.

Keep percentages under 3.5%, particularly solo, as a chemical note will then become apparent.

My Uses and Pairings

  • As a sweetener
  • Add to coffees, tobaccos, booze 
  • Ice creams, cakes-cupcake-frosting
  • Blend with other butterscotch and caramels
  • Mix with creams and butter
  • Mix with Biscuit and or cookie flavours
  • Custards & vanillas
TFA caramel original

Butterscotch and caramel flavours have an almost unlimited use in DIY, as the same can be said for their real counterparts.  However, this flavour often begs for a little more TLC, so if it’s your only butterscotch or caramel, you may want some creams and or buttery elements on stand by.
